Dr. Norman Doidge " The Brain That Changrs Itself" did an excellent job in presenting the current understanding of the plastic brain. It was incredible how much I learned about myself, my past and what I need to do to alter my future. I have read many books about how the brain works and I have read many books on the current understanding of plasticity. Norman relies a great deal on meta-analysis, not single studies. He quotes many other doctors, studies and researchers, many reaching back decades.
If you have ever wanted a deeper look inside your own mind and how your brain is wired then I suggest reading this book, you will be surprised at just how much you learn about yourself.
